Asma Kazmi (b. 1978, Quetta, Pakistan) works across various media to connect people, media, and objects. She received an M.F.A. in Sculpture from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2007, and a B.F.A. in Sculpture and Film/Video from the Massachusetts College of Art in 2002. Kazmi approaches her practice from a post- installation-/object-centric position, which allows her to create transdisciplinary, relational works where people, media, and objects come together. Kazmi is currently a part-time lecturer at the Kansas City Art Institute. She is the recipient of the Rocket Grant, Charlotte Street Foundation and the Spencer Museum of Art at Kansas University; the At the Edge: Innovative Art in Chicago Award, University of Illinois at Chicago; and the Creative Stimulus Award, Critical Mass for the Visual Arts, St. Louis. Her work has been exhibited at venues such as H&R Block Space and Grand Arts, both in Kansas City, MO; University of Missouri and Boots Contemporary Art Space in St. Louis; The Guild Gallery, New York; Galerie Sans Titre, Brussels, Belgium; Gallery 400, University of Illinois at Chicago; and the Boston Underground Film Festival and the MassArt Film Society in Boston, MA.
